For those who may not have heard, sad news indeed. Loren Russell is now playing flute and telling stories on high. This was so sudden and sad, Loren passed away last Friday. He shall remain in our hearts forever. He was a highly regarded member of our community and one of the gentlest souls I knew. Farewell Loren, go with Grandfather.

Sometimes “Left” is not right. Sometimes it is. “Left” may also imply loss or abandonment. When one leaves, something is almost always left behind.

Join us as six story tellers brave the Odyssey Stage to share their stories of loss, recovery, and discovery in the “Left” show on March 2nd.
Storytellers include Angela Orlando, Karen Hollish, Aly Cruz, Pamela Campbell and more!
